The University of Toronto is a public research university in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, located on the grounds surrounding Queen’s Park. It was founded by the royal charter in 1827 as King’s College, the first institution of higher education in the colony of Upper Canada. Originally controlled by the Church of England, the university assumed the current name in 1850 by becoming a secular institution.

Likewise, academically, the University of Toronto stands out for its influential movements and curricula in literary criticism and communication theory, collectively known as the Toronto School. The university was the birthplace of insulin and stem cell research, and was the site of the first practical electronic microscope, the development of deep learning, multitouch technology, the identification of the first Cygnus X-1 black hole and the development of La NP completeness theory.
